This course examines the role of public information in all-hazards incident management and provides practical training in crisis communication techniques.

The course consists of three modules: The first module reviews the topics of terrorism, Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs), national response structures, incident management, and government and agency roles, the second module covers issues unique to interacting with members of the media to help you build more effective relationships and avoid common mistakes when providing information to the press and public, and the third module introduces the crisis communication life cycle and crisis communication planning.

Target Audience: Personnel serving in all emergency response disciplines within a jurisdiction and individuals whose duties may require them to interface with news media representatives during their community's response to a major incident.
